Turning the other cheek

elephant
This is a philosophy I buy into pretty much most of the time. Not for any religious affiliation but more because I think it is a good way for me to be. However, lately I have been finding it a bit difficult. A series of events have happened with people I know well and less well over the last few weeks that make me feel that turning the other cheek can make you a bit of a mug sometimes.
It is hard to always be the one to try and understand the other person’s point of view when actually they are just being unfair or difficult.

Perhaps I need to regain my perspective  or just need a sense of humour injection ( my choice of photo is an attempt..)

Any one know any funny stories?

Do you have a tactic that helps you take the higher ground, swallow the bitter pill, turn the other cheek?
I’d love to hear it if you do.

    I wish I did… I always try to think it is not personal, but after a few times of the same cr@p, I just avoid the person in question, which really sucks, I know. This is a part of friendship (is it part of friendship?) that I find very difficult to deal with.
